  1. O.k. I just had to include the path /usr/src/linux-headers-4.14...sunxi/include and the code sense works. Guess I can take it from here. The normal "cross compile" seems to work, too.
  2. No. But I am still at the stage to set up a decent IDE, so that I can include header files for other kernel drivers etc. I do not believe that the modules will just compile, the gpio is handled differently in the new kernel and I would actually like to explore the code a bit (without changing it). The *.h files will probably suffice to see what definitions exist. Actually, I would just have to know where the sources are, after compile.sh is being run.
  3. This may be a somewhat stupid question, but I just cannot find anything about it. I have custom-compiled the kernel for Allwinner A20/cubietruck as described here on a Virtual Box Ubuntu 18.04 Once done, I took the *.deb files out of output/debs, copied it to the machine and installed them. Everything worked fine and so far so good . But the "build" directory on the host with the compile.sh script is surprisingly empty. However, if I want to cross compile an additional kernel module on the virtual machine, how do I set this up? Is it enough to "make" with CROSS-COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf-? or do I also need to somehow consider the linaro stuff in cache/toolchains? (the arm-linux-gnueabihf files are all in the /usr/bin of the host machine) I also want to reference some header-files (*.h) from the drivers sources, etc. can I copy the directory /usr/src/linux-headers-4.14....-sunxi? What happens if I extract the linux-source-next-sunxi_5.66_all.deb file to the virtual host machine? Also as a side note: if I want to recompile to enable an additional module, what do I do to use the old kernel configuration as a base? When I run "compile.sh" again, I get the choice to choose "cubietruck" again, but it starts from zero and does not consider any options I had previously disabled or changed. The reason, I am doing this, is that I am upgrading from a legacy kernel and I have some custom modules to control peripherals here and here, that I want to adapt to the new kernel.
